I use the footage in just about every one of my school projects, imagine my surprise when I saw it as part of a cutscene in the original Metal Gear Solid for Playstation! I thought it was cool... But yeah, great clip. This is why I keep coming back to archive.org!

Awesome video.

Any idea of where I could get this in the highest quality? I am a film student making a documentary about destruction of the cities.

cheers :)

Very scary footage that has been used many times. Very useful, and of great historical importance.
